it got to be too much for hhh to commute back and forth to work (it's about 85 miles each way), so we decided to get a place on campus. we now have a cozy little one-bedroom where we can all stay. willa is super happy about that, since her love of vassar grass knows no bounds. this love is communicated through howling and incessant barking anytime we are within poughkeepsie city limits ("why can't we be outside ALL THE TIME?" she wants to know), which has probably (definitely) made us the bane of our neighbor's existence.
we moved up a few weeks ago, and the place is coming together. i'm of the belief that one should unpack ASAP, i.e., on the day you move. (boxes are the worst.) we were able to bring a lot of the furniture from carroll street, and got a couple things from a friend's moving sale. that plus a trip to the poughkeepsie target (leaps beyond than the one at atlantic terminal...it's like they aren't even the same store) has us pretty much set up. the only thing left to do is to hang the photos!
that's it for now. i'll be back eventually with the bedroom and kitchen. xoxo
